Perception is not always a readily available contemplation outcome. Perception is always an interpretation too. Thinking is not based on edification foundations alone. It is also wrought with different purposes, conceptualizations and anticipations. An individual can never be absolutely certain that another person watching an object or an action with them at the same time interprets it with the same ultimate discernment. What we can surmise is that, under certain conditions, common perception facilitates human interaction. In order for members of a community to communicate and be able to act conjointly towards a common goal there need to be structurally identical elements in what they observe, feel and perceive. Thinking always objectivizes perception anew and makes it possible for different inferences to be interpreted as perception discrepancies. Individual perception, on the other hand, always strives to reroute thinking into a subjective mould and construe it as an emotion, or an upfront taken attitude which shapes the edifying algorithms and the premises beneath it. Before venturing to shed a definitive clue onto such contradictory connotations, one should ponder first whether there is an absolutely objective perception at all, one that soars above all subjective relations and yet involves people of different backgrounds, timelines, and locations. That, however, should be no obstacle to contemplating levels of perception discrepancy and the impact it has on the clarity of meaning. There are cases where an individual can be more objective than the whole community they belong to, and can perceive meanings more correctly than a vast majority of their fellow countrymen. Key words: perception, discrepancy, meaning, inference, edification
